If you are planning to stay at Mziki and I recommend you do you are in for a utterly charming experience. First things first, this isn't a big luxe lodge with all mod cons, there isn't a spa, the wifi is patchy, the rooms are better than basic but not plush, and even the electricity is sporadic (outages on the...

We came to Mziki with our 18 month old daughter and it was absolutely perfect. A lot of places have an age restriction, but Mziki embrace families with children. It's small, intimate and unpretentious and with only few rooms, it probably wouldn't feel busy if all the rooms/ chalets were occupied. Lovely, friendly and relaxing environment with 2 game drives...

It is very beautiful place near Johannesburg. The service was excelent. We very much enjoyed the safari trip with the guide - he showed us places like paradies. We were already several times on a safari and saw in other places more wildlife-here it is the very special service!

I won a nights stay for 2 people at Mziki. The accommodation was very comfortable and the setting was beautiful, just 90mins from Joburg for a wonderful bush experience. Our ranger Ryan was very knowledgeable and the staff were attentive. Thank you Mziki

Great lodge. Although not a big 5 game reserve, good game viewing of elephant, Rhino big antilope etc. The barge trip on the lake with the variety of birds is very special. Knowledgeable ranger. Close to johannesburg. The lodge is small so no big groups. Intimate.

Mziki Safari Lodge is a great lodge, and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Overall excellent facilities and we loved the game drives. The only comment on the downside is that the variety and standard of food could be improved. We found the catering disappointing.

Dear Stefan, Thank you very much for your feedback and comments. We do try to upkeep the dirt road on our own, as the municipality is not really assisting us unfortunately.
